Abstract

En este trabajo, se evalúa el potencial de diversificación y sofisticación productiva de los estados donde se instalarán las tres primeras Zonas Económicas Especiales (ZEE), en México. Utilizando la metodología de complejidad económica, propuesta por Hausmann, Hidalgo et al. (2014), se clasifican las actividades económicas justamente con base en su complejidad, y se estima una medida de distancia para identificar las industrias manufactureras más viables de que se desarrollen, dadas las capacidades productivas existentes en cada región. Los resultados revelan las diferencias entre las estructuras económicas de cada entidad, así como las oportunidades particulares que poseen para transformarlas, por lo que son un insumo valioso para la toma de decisiones en la primera etapa de la implementación del modelo.
